UK Apple iPad 2010 - Fastest time to type the alphabet on an iPad


UK Apple iPad set Guinness World Record 2010 - Fastest time to type the alphabet on an iPad

Live from the iPad queue at the Apple Store on Regent Street, the latest Guinness World Record Breaker can be announced today for the fastest time to type the alphabet on an iPad. Joseph Grech, who is 28 and originally from Malta, was queuing from 3am before making his record attempt and setting a new global standard with an astonishing speed of 6.61 seconds for his fingers to go from A to Z.

Surrounded by over a thousand Apple fans, all hungry to get their hands on the brand new Apple iPad, breaking this Guinness World Record was not an easy feat for Joseph.

"I was really looking forward to being one of the first to get my hands on an iPad, so to also end up getting a Guinness World Record today is incredible. I'm really happy and can't wait to brag to my friends about it. The photo of me with the certificate will be my Facebook profile photo!" said Joseph, the latest addition to the hallowed Guinness World Records hall of fame.

The stakes were high as Joseph was up against over 30 other fast-fingers hoping to set a Guinness World Record today. Initially, it seemed Jordan Chitty from Kennington, London, had set an unbeatable time with 6.7 seconds, but with just minutes to go Joseph mustered the need for speed and recorded the Guinness World Record breaking time.

A spokesman from Guinness World Records said, "The new Apple iPad is such an iconic and exciting device. Today it seems only fitting that arguably the biggest launch in Apple's long and distinguished history is also the backdrop to its iPad being involved in a Guinness World Record breaker attempt."

Also queuing for an iPad on Friday morning were the world's tallest married couple, Keisha and Wilco van Kleef-Bolton, in full wedding dress. The couple feature on the new free LITE app created specifically for the iPad: Guinness World Records: At Your Fingertips ( http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/ipad.aspx).

Most number of people wearing superhero costumes set Guinness World Record - Melbourne

The Guinness World Record for the most number of people wearing superhero costumes in one location has been broken in Melbourne.




Melbourne smashed the previous record of 1091 people wearing super hero costumes in the one place held by the UK, when 1245 people gathered at Federation Square.

The CBD was no place for bad guys on Saturday with Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, the Green Lantern and other comic book heroes portrayed hundreds of times over by people of all ages, genders, shapes and sizes.

Superman was the most popular hero, closely followed by Batman, Robin and Spider Man. The girls were out in force too, dressed as Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, Super Girl and Hawk Girl.

The managing director of Warner Bros. Consumer Products in Australia, Preston Lewis, shouted triumphantly in his American accent: "We did it, we broke the record my brother."

"To see all those people, young and old, families, babies in Fed Square was great, they were so enthusiastic,'' he said.

The youngest hero was nine-day-old Rhys Hapmton, of Sunbury. His mother, Elise Guymer, said superheroes run in her family.

"He's following in the footsteps of his two brothers who are always dressing up as Batman,'' Ms Guymer said.

"He's the Bat Baby of the family.''

The event was held to celebrated the 75th anniversary of the release of the first DC comic.
